If you think homemade salsa is hard, you are wrong. I found one recipe for salsa that changed my life and I have now started deviating from it. The original calls for canned tomatoes and canned chipotles and I have started doing it fresh.
I have deviated from this but only slightly. The only main difference is now I use whatever I have on hand that is fresh. This week it was tomatoes, cayenne peppers, onion, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic salt. I usually use all of the tomatoes and half an onion and then add a little less of everything else that I think and let it sit for a day. The next day I’ll taste it and add anything if necessary. Usually it’s hot peppers as I never know how hot they will be. I do process mine in a food processer so it’s not too chunky so the boy will eat it, but normally, I like a little chunk to it. This is how my last batch turned out (with chimichangas, recipe here.)
